I've built a HTPC system using a Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H and core i3 processor running Win 7 x64. My audio and video connection is via HDMI.
What benefit do I get from installing the Realtek Audio drivers off the Gigabyte site. I'm getting sound via HDMI with the default drivers in Win 7. Will the Realtek driver override that and provide different/improved capabilities over HDMI, or is it only applicable to non-HDMI based outputs?
Sorry - I'm confused by the 'onboard' nature of the i3 chip. Is the sound over HDMI coming from Intel or Realtek?
